  Description Tutorials in Introductory Physics(1) is a set of research-validated instructional materials intended to supplement the lecture, textbook, and laboratory of a standard calculus-based or algebra-based introductory course. The tutorials are designed to address specific conceptual and reasoning difficulties that have been identified through research. In addition to providing hands-on experience with the curriculum, the workshop will include discussions of instructional strategies and results from assessments of student learning. Important aspects related to implementation of the tutorials will be covered, including preparation of graduate teaching assistants, undergraduate peer instructors, and post docs. Copies of Tutorials in Introductory Physics will be provided to participants. (1)Tutorials in Introductory Physics, First Ed., L.C. McDermott, P.S. Shaffer, and the Physics Education Group at the University of Washington, Prentice Hall (2002). * This work has been supported in part by a series of grants from the NSF, the most recent of which is CCLI grant #0618185.
